Free, as in "free beer", not as in "free speech." Carbonite is copywrite-protected by the original authors. Technically, the fan update is breaking copyright law.

What I mean is, yes, all addons must be free to download and install, but most are not free as in "here, have at it." Someone pays for the beer, but gives it to you for at no cost. That someone owns the beer, not you.
